KTWV 06 Issue 20: Celebrate Founders Day

Today is the 124th Founders day of our college, and I would like to extend my best wishes to all those who share the fond memories of College that helped shape my life.

I have sent a note to Principal Dr. Anil Wilson to convey my greetings to all those associated with our great institution.

As this may be the last issue of this blog for this year, may I also convey the very best Season's Greetings to all my regular readers around the world.

Do not hesitate to get in touch with me if you plan to be anywhere near this part of the world so that we can organise a reunion.

To give you an idea how this old critter looks like now, I thought I would share my picture with you.

JM as Father Christmas

And to jog the memory of those of you from the college in the early 60's, so as to visualise this guy who used to be in college with you, here is a picture of me from that era:

Have a great Founders Day and an even greater and prosperous New Year.

Dear Jacob

I know this apology is a decade late, but nevertheless here it is. I wrote a mail I think in September 1995, which you claimed then, was the first negative response you ever received. My mail accused your website of being too romantic when it came to College. And at the time I wrote it from a friend's email id as I didn't have one of my own.

I have in the interim of course, changed my mind. And seeing my name in the archives sounding all angry and fiery is incredibly embarrassing.
I think you've done a wonderful job of keeping people from an alma mater together, despite the distances that time and geographies create. And it’s incredible that in a decade where not just blogs, but businesses on the Internet have come and gone, Kooler talk (The web version) has endured.

My congratulations and apologies at the same time. This is the lead up to St. Stephen's College's 125th year and I hope to see you at the reunion.
